with us because of george bush and dick cheney, yeah, he certainly had all the signals crossed of the fact that he was carrying out criminal regulations of the cia interrogators who kept us safe in the days after 9/11. this is such a confusing message. fueled with benjamin netanyahu. -- feud with benjamin netanyahu. goes part to the lawsuit of the middle east. killing top al qaeda leaders he has done a good job. again, he goes half way and then he undoes it and al qaeda is stronger now in many ways than it was on 9/11 because it's metastasized. >> laura: come on biden said al qaeda is disseminated. they are on the run. they are running towards us that's the problem. >> absolutely. >> laura: last night we had a former dhs and cia official chad suite on the show. he remarked it was unusual for the government and he wasn't very happy about it. unusual for the government to release so many specifics about the type of threat. now, people are pressing for info for sure. but he was worried that you cut off perhaps sources and other avenues of information when people suddenly okay, zawahiri knows
surviving presidents, george bush and george w. bush were all -- were unable to attend. president obama began addressing the crowd a few moments ago. >> we rightly and best remember dr. king's soaring oratory that they. how he gave a mighty voice to the quiet hopes of millions, how he offered a celebration path -- salvation path. his words along to the ages. investing a power and prophecy unmatched in our times. >> our correspondent is in washington at the celebrations. can you give us a flavor of the atmosphere there today? >> it is a very special atmosphere. tens of thousand of people turned up in spite of the bad weather. john lewis, the only man, civil rights activist, who stood here 50 years ago with mart luther king. we had actors, jamie foxx and oprah winfrey spoke. all very well receed from this ry mixed crowd, but as you can imagine, the stars here were the three presidents. you don't get to see three presidents speaking in the space of 45 minutes that often and the biggest of them all, we can still see behind me the first african-american president here in the united states, b
third of the -- >> you can't count camp david. >> george bush was on vacation. whereas president obama takes two to three weeks per year, about the same as the rest of us. >> we have to set that record straight. >> the same as the rest of us. >> we have to set that record straight. christie, bless your heart. >> i would love for you -- >> george bush didn't go to hawaii, he didn't go to martha's vineyard. he didn't go to atlanta. >> christie, let her talk. >> he didn't go to all these places, you know where he went? he went to his ranch in texas. you know what he did on his ranch in texas? he chopped wood. he went to his own home. >> you got to let her talk, one at a time. our audience needs to hear. >> these democrats, sean. he went to his own ranch. christie, i realize that you're a conservative woman makes you feel uncomfortable. you feel that you have to constantly interrupt me. it doesn't work. i'm going to continue with my point and you're going to listen. >> let her talk. >> george bush, let's act like a lady, okay. george bush went to his ranch in texas and he chopped wood and
-related elements may, in fact, take charge of the country? president george w. bush was hounded by the press over these questions. if he had to answer, so should barack obama. here in stud quo is fox news channel's own colonel oliver north. his new book out in paperback today. >> it is a must read for barack obama. he needs to read this one. it's about a president who forgets about 9/11. guess what's three weeks away? >> my concern is, first of all, this has been going on for 30 months. 100,000 killed. >> over 100,000 dead. over 250,000 wounded. 2.3 million people in refugee camps along the turkish, syrian border. now flowing into iraq. it's an unmitigated disaster that the consequence of this administration's naive approach that all you need is an election in a country that's never had democratic traditions, no institutions and this so-called arab spring. every single country that's experienced this from tunisia in the west to syria in the east, people are worse off than they were before. that includes egypt, the most populous arab country. it's a disaster. >> they have telegraphed that it would
george w. bush nominated rice to be national security advisor. >> congratulations. >> reporter: condoleezza rice has an impressive resume. in 1981 at the age of 26 she became a professor at stanford and later went on to become university provote. she was unique, a woman specializes in soviet affairs. in 1989 she joined then president's george w. bush's white house staff as a member of the security council. >> she is an expert on russia and eastern europe. >> reporter: retired san francisco state international relations professor miller says there's no question that rice is the right person for the job of advisor. rice spoke about the racism her family endured. >> my father joined our party because in 1952, the democrats would not register him to vote. the republicans did. >> reporter: one of her play mates was among four little girls killed in 1963 when a white racist bombed the church. rice says her parents thought her to never allow racism to hold her back. those who know rice say if there are scars from her past, they don't know. >> i see no distortions from the kinds of thi
how george bush was treated? i just think the signage and language and history is so much deeper and these images are so much more insensitive than anything that george bush faced. >> but i think the really important comparison is to back to the last democratic president who made republicans crazy with hate for him. so lfb i images like that are racist, but i don't think republicans hate him because he's black, but because he's a democratic president, and a lot of the discussion gets built around his race. republicans would tell you that he had orchestrated the murder of vince foster and he was a rapist and all these other horrible thing. >> i think that's very different that go home, you're 47% kneelingo and go home, kenyan. these are cultural stereotypes, rachellely inflammatory. >> i mostly agree with what josh said i think the hatred comes first and then you use everything you have, but there are some things unique. we have people questioning whether he was born in the united states. it goes on, if you look at polls in more nan 5% of people i think the color of his skin, the
the opposite test. we had a test in the george w. bush years that went the other way. that said, we're going to cut all kinds of taxes and it's going to unleash lots of economic growth. the opposite happened. not only did it not unleash economic improgrowth, it was a decade, but of course the deficit became a big problem again. i don't think it's fair to say there are a lot of moving parts. there's always a lot of moving parts. i think the policy lesson just hasn't been learned. >> and we were given a surplus. >> tax revenue in the bush years did go up but spending went up more. that was the big problem. in the clinton years spending as a percentage of the economy actually shrunk because -- >> you're introducing -- i agree with you -- relevant moving point. the argument here is if you implement a tax increase in terms of bill clinton or a tax cut in terms of george bush can you go to a place where this has tremendously horrible or tremendously wonderful effects. the clinton years -- >> overall the empirical evidence is overwhelming that increased taxes lead to lower economic growth but other

to be simple. look at how george w. bush became president. it was the overpowering incentive in the republican party was in win. in the 1990s they lost. the government shutdown in 1995. they lost when clinton won again. they lost on impeachment. they say, we have to find a way to win an election. you have george w. bush and compassionate conservatism. it's a totally different game. they said compassionate conservative was big government conservatism and spoiled the good name of conservatism and gave us barack obama. you have two sort of competing things, two sort of complementary things going on in the conservative movement. one is standard. beat the other party's guy. beat barack obama. the other one is there's no such thing in a post-bush world of being too pure in the republican party. what that exactly means from a policy and agenda standpoint, i don't know, nobody's articulated yet. there's this constant battle now, constant reinforcement for people who seek out the most pure position, most pure label and you can gain stature, prominence and make a lot of money on the conservative side by
, by the way, there were lots of republicans, over 60 who supported a minimum wage increase when george bush proposed it the last time we raised it back in 2007. so this is not an issue that is that foreign to republicans, in no small part but it just polls through the roof. people recognize that a wage floor of $7.25 not a very low wage floor in our economy, but very low by measures of other advanced economies is something that is popular because, a, it doesn't have any budgetary implications. and b, it helps working people get reconnected to a growing economy that has largely left them behind. >> you know, you're right. because when you look at the polling, polls show raising minimum wage is really hugely popular. gallup poll found 71% of americans support it, including 75% of moderates, and even 54% of conservatives. and the fight for higher minimum wage goes all the way back to the first march on washington. did you know, jared, the organizers wanted a national minimum wage to, quote, give all americans a decent standard of living. this is in the '63 march. they wanted it to be $2 an hou
it was reasonable why it was george bush, bill clinton, ronald reagan, any president who takes the time to speak to the american people where they are, be that's his obligation. i thought it was a good idea. as long as is he doesn't choose to only speak to jay leno, i think this is fine for obama to do. >> to stay on the issue of the terror alerts because that is obviously major news at the moment, 19 embassies and consulates, u.s. consulates closed around the world. there were drone strikes in yemen, two attacks were foiled also in yemen. there's obviously a lot of things happening behind the scenes that we don't know about. as you say, the president comes on jay leno sort of tells us what he can tell us. but do you think perhaps he was able to allay fears as to the terror alert that americans are exposed to at the moment? >> i don't think so. i mean, and unfortunately, it's because i think fear is just a part of american life now. i mean, since 9/11, we're sort of dulled to the pain, but we live with the expectation that the men and women who are fighting abroad in the middle east, that the me
are recalling images of the start of your rack war. tony blair was george bush's poodle. the nickname haunted him throughout the rest of the tenure in office. the cartoon in the financial times today puts it, easy the man asking in london -- the man in washington wants to know what we have to say to our man in london, basically. that is how the story has been playing out. jeremy, reacting to that other story, they reacted by saying that there is a close intelligence relationship between the uk and the u.s. and a number of other countries including australia and canada's mapping and nor is everything shared. >> all we know is that there is a very close relationship, a sharing of databases, a great deal of information. an incredible ease by which the u.s. can extract anyone and put them on trial. it is hard to keep things happening. we see this extension of the u.s. paranoia of that security. i think this is just another example of that great paranoia. this is, frankly, harassment and the partner of the journalists that happened to be traveling through heathrow airport. this was a very big pers
communications director for presidents george w. bush and former senior adviser for the 2008 mccain presidential campaign, nicolle wallace. we have the chairman of deutsch incorporated. >> what's with the glasses? >> they're new. >> vanity glasses. >> are they? >> can i see them, please? >> i have -- >> are they real? >> willie and i like to go up and down madison avenue on saturdays and we saw this -- >> put them on and find out they are not real. let's see. oh, my god, they're vanity glasses. try. >> those are reading glasses. >> they look good ob you. >> allows him to make a point like this too. >> eyes look bigger. >> all right. that is subtle and in washington, msnbc political analyst and former chairman of the republican national committee, michael steele. good to have you all on board this morning. >> good morning. >> vanity glasses and all. get right into it. >> willie and i do want to first point out, radio for europe, one of the great songs -- >> we haven't heard it recently on the show. >> no. >> r.e.m. >> cold war overtures. >> perfect. all right. speaking of, there is no love loss b
w. bush -- >> in washington -- >> george w. bush had nancy pelosi as speaker of the house in 2007 and 2008, go back and look at what george w. bush did. when 80% of americans and probably 95% of people in the house were against the surge in iraq, you know what george bush said, we're going to do a surge in iraq. guess what? he got it through. he pushed it through. >> he had a relationship. >> he brow beat them. >> he talked to her. >> they talked to them, but they also pushed it through. it's not easy. >> you think that was his relationships or cheneys? >> i think cheney said things to members of the united states senate that did not -- >> alex is mad. >> coming up on "morning joe" -- >> what did he say to leahy? go -- yourself. i love that guy. i am not a shamed to say i love dick cheney. >> whoa. >> does that jar you too? >> excuse me? >> listen, you're jarred by all of these great americans i love. let me tell you something -- >> oh, my god. i just want to get to a break. >> do what you want to do. i will not sit here while you tear down the united states of america. j gentleme
they sit down, when a george w. bush sits down as a candidate for the first time with you, do you get a feeling -- have you had feelings once in a while where you're sitting there going i think he's the one who's going to make it all the way? did you have that feeling with -- >> i don't know if i can say who's going to make it all the way. there are some i don't think they're ever going to make it. i never quite got the rick perry thing. that one -- >> you never fell for that? >> no. it didn't -- i never got that sense of gravitas, you know. >> because all the pros, all the great political analysts thought oh, when rick perry gets in there look out, here he comes. >> no, i never thought that. it was just too narrow-minded for me. whether it was on gays or women's issues or whatever it might be. you know, people like bill clinton, like hillary clinton, you realize these are great minds at work and they go and they think through their answers. and sometimes they're very good at evading it. and you get the sense, okay, they're trying to evade me, okay, we'll move on because i'm not going
from former president george w. bush relieving a statement as we look there at the martin family there under that umbrella as they all assemble. this is from president bush. our country has come a long way since that bright afternoon 50 years ago, yet our journey to justice is not flel comrooet. just to the ea complete. there are on the national mall our president whose story reflects the promise of america will help us honor the man who inspired millions to redeem that promise. president bush refers to the promise of america that is reflected in president obama. when we think about that, how significant does that weigh on this presidency that basically barack obama really personifies, comes to life as the dream of mlk? >> good for george w. bush. i thought it was a nice statement. i'm not going to question that. but to say this. at least back in 1939 when marion anderson had to sing here, "my country 'tis of thee" rather than the constitution hall they said the reason because she was black. at least they were honest back then. today in american politics you have donald trump who
to this conversation. this morning, former president george w. bush was asked on fox news about the decision president obama faces. he wouldn't weigh in directly but says the u.s. can't ignore what's going on in other parts of the world. >> as time passes, people forget the lessons of september 11. one of the key lessons is the human condition elsewhere matters to the security of the united states. >> as all of this is going on, the civil war continues in syria. this morning, measuwe're gettin details about a new attack. this video may be disturbing. syrian activists say this a tack took place on monday. they say a government plane attacked a school with a substance-like napalm. the images show no blood, just burns over 50, sometimes 80% of student's bodies. rebels say ten people were killed and dozens more were injured. with me now, rhode island democratic senator jack reed. he has also served as an army ranger. thank you for taking the time. i want to start with the news from britain yesterday. and the rejection of preliminary vote on support for a strike. how big a deal is this as it comes to -- or
. this goes back to the presidency of george bush. we heard a lot of the same -- it's almost the exact same sort of scenario. you had some people on the far left in congress talking about impeaching president bush. and you had the leaders of their parties saying, we're not really interested in that. that's a side show, a side track. but for republicans it seems to be a fever dream they can't shake, that they really want to impeach this president. it seems odd, there's certainly one way to get rid of a president who's unpopular and incompetent. that's through an election. and i think obviously, that ship has sailed. >> and andy, you know, just to touch upon that if you could follow up on that, prior to the recent election, the gop way to go forward was to try to defeat him in this election, in fact some of them said it was their soul priority. we know that didn't happen. what should we be doing to making sure they are making gains in 2014 and 2016. is this the way to win elections? >> no, it's not, mara. i think the impeachment story is overblown. everybody is out of town. there's no real ne
christie over with? >> sadly over amnesty. by the way, that's when the love affair ended with george bush too. not only me but a lot of conservatives. >> could ter, thanks for giving me time to ask one question. >> you're welcome. >> thanks. good to see you. >>> when we come back, we're going to tell you what other government agency could, in fact, be tied to the tax agency's enemy list and one thing is certain, the answer will make your blood boil. and tonight the feds are announcing new moves to track your neighborhoods and literally who lives in them and why. we're going to explain that example of government overreach. >>> and the latest attacks on oprah winfrey, a lot of brushbacks to her comments about trayvon martin. >>> first you get to select the video of the day. option number one, unbelievable footage of a horrific bus crash in china. if you want to see the tape in full, log on and twitt twitter @shaunhannity. and we will continue.

? do you intervene. >> laura: i didn't campaign there giving a big speech saying that george bush was the big bully and i was going to turn the page and it was going to be hope, love and rainbows for the whole world. that wasn't me campaigning. we have a president of the united states that came in under a big promise of bolstering u.s.' image around the world and our approval around the world is going down not going up. and the place place is in chaos over the president to say it's complicated. it's a weak response it shows his response is nonsensical. >> what's the response. >> lindsey graham and john mccain is right for us to send $1.3 billion over there when they are using that money to kill people in the streets, that probably isn't such a good thing to keep doing. that's one idea but, you know, i'm not president. >> well, but if you take that money away and destabilize the military over there, we're talking about a massive country on the border with israel. ask the israelis what they think about us continuing to support the military. >> laura: you mean, it's difficult but tha
without white people voting? absolutely not. number two, people have amnesia. people hated george bush. people hated bill clinton. it was personal, it was about their party, it was about their beliefs, but no one said i don't like him because he is from arkansas or from texas or he is from connecticut. i think when people look at barack obama, they love his policies, they hate his policies, i don't think they hate him. and i don't see the resentment because he's black. i don't see it. >> i want to see this movie, i absolutely want to see it. i understand it is very entertaining. i also understand it is loosely based on fact, more based on fiction. the butler -- >> i know who he is. >> not from georgia, he is from virginia. mom wasn't raped by a white man, father wasn't killed by the white man that raped his mom. it seems like they're playing a lot of race cards. >> talked to a friend of mine in the white house, he reminded me who this guy was, and then i remembered him. i didn't know about his background or anything about the story. he was a pleasant guy, had been there a long time, ma
to the american people. vacation,going on that is such a tired, tired excuse. many times did george bush and other presidents go on vacation? people act like they should tell the president what to do. host: i wasn't making a reference to the n, but the fact there's been some talk the president even indicated when he met with the press corps a few weeks ago at a news conference that -- that a news conference would be forthcoming, and some speculated to do so before vacation next week. that is the frame of the question. caller: you're acting like you can tell him what to do. he is the president of the united states. in this congress has tried to tell him what to do. host: thank you from the call. ron has this point -- how about reaching out to congress? former governor and former 2012 republican presidential nominee mitt romney speaking to about 200 donors at lakewood in new hampshire, the headline from the washington times "romney sees a shutdown danger." from hisaiser not far new hampshire summer home. he said in his speech, i badly want obamacare to be stripped of its funds but we need to exercis
is just a continuation of president george w. bush in the foreign policy realm where the president, this president is just continuing the hawkish policies of the bush administration. and then the next minute, they're claiming that the president is weak in foreign policy showing weakness to our enemies and yet, completely forgetting about all the drone strikes that the president is doing, and the other thing about what jim demint is doing which i find rather callous is would he rather the president of the united states not close the embassies and make our -- and make american personnel targets for a terrorist attack? i wonder what they would be saying if the president followed through on the advice that they're giving him. >> you mean another benghazi. >> yeah, exactly. >> benghazi, benghazi. right on cue, rick santorum not a foreign policy expert accused the president of being timid. i love the personifications, timid. muscular foreign policy. they turn on to some school yard kind of event. let's watch. >> i think it's really a consequence of the policies of this administration. i
of george w. bush, told "people" magazine hillary clinton should run in 2016. she stopped short of saying she'd vote for her, but said clinton is, quote, unbelievably accomplished. at a dark time in politics when it seems the parties can't even agree on what they disagree about, that goes a long way. we need more barbara bushes in the beltway. it was a pleasant surprise to hear from her. she's not the first one in her family to speak positively about the clintons. george w. bush has come out and said she knows what it means to work under pressure. regardless of how you view the clintons or the bushes, both families know what public service is all about or what public service should be all about. you know, ultimately it should be about getting results. it should be about making people's lives better. unfortunately, we've lost sight of that in politics today. if you give someone a compliment or you serve someone on the opposite side of the political aisle, you're seen as weak. you're seen as someone that, you know, is a traitor, essentially. this comes from personal experience. i spent a lo
to -- when people say do i trust this president more than george bush? i say yes. you said i think this is the first time since the presidency became imperial more or less after the civil war, that that has happened. >> yeah. now the bush administration, a conservative would pipe in and say there were most fisa amendments after 2008. and that's true, but the democrats forced it, and there were enough votes between democrats and libertarian-ish republicans to get that passed. but i don't think george bush and dick cheney, would have enunciated a policy like obama did on friday. >> stephanie: a lot of liberals unimpressed, you said i am. if you are not signed on to the whole program you might as well be joe mccarthy. and we liberals are trained to think of these liberties as being absolutely nonnegotiable. but they are negotiated all the time. as with anything there are degrees. >> i wrote a column a couple of months ago back when the gun debate was going on, when i was setting out to demonstrate to people that the rights in the second amendment aren't completely absolute. and i said
in the george bush white house. he's taking your comments and questions as we discuss syria this morning. jerry is up next from cookville, tennessee. jerry good morning. caller: good morning. the president is talking about the shot in the bow. i find it frightening when it comes to this president and foreign policy. it was a game of chess, i believe it would be a check mate game against this president. he's done nothing but absolute disaster. look at north africa. look at that. some democrats are calling it a success his foreign policy. it's frightening what's happening. i don't see anything that's any good. just think, if he happen to won the nobel peace prize, how bad things really might be. host: we'll go to democratic line, dave is waiting from washington d.c. good morning. caller: peter. the reason that the u.k. not to proceed is because there was a lack of conclusive evidence. in the regions and suburbs of damascus there is not conclusive evidence that the chemical weapon attack were perpetrated by a horrible attack regime. the obama administration has made entirely clear that they wi
is a comment. w bush and george w. bush declined to participate because they have health issues. george w. bush did release a statement earlier today that read -- the statement from former president george w. bush, who recently had some heart treatment. let's go to mississippi. laura from ocean springs, mississippi. i am 45 years old. when barack obama talked about education. they discussed how blacks and whites could not go to the same school. thes a graduate from university of south alabama. i was able to graduate from there with a bachelors. >> what did you get your degree in? >> i got my degree in exercise science. work on atrying to masters, but i have been sick. i will have surgery in september. i will try to finish up with a masters in education. >> good luck to you, thank you for joining us. florida, next up. >> how are you doing? listen, i wanted to commend you guys and congratulate you for an awesome broadcast. such a remarkable speech by such a remarkable character. encourage.mber to some of the members of congress commenting about the days activities. here here is senator casey from
andduring during the george herbert walker bush administration, the anti- tank buster rounds that were 1982.ed in we are not totally innocent either. it is hard to believe the administration. i know they are doing their best to settle the conflict in the middle east. is kind of hard when you are just as dirty as the rest of them. you can also reach out to us via e-mail. andy from vernon, new york. thanks for holding on, republican line. taking myink you for call. i want to add onto to what the last guy said. ,f your audience goes to google they are going to find numerous stories where syrian rebels admitted to an associated press correspondent that they were responsible for the chemical weapons incident, which obama is trying to blame on bashar al- assad. the casualties were a result of by mishandling the weapons. they were told that they were not properly trained in handling the chemical weapons or even told what they were. that is where it came from. this is really reminiscent of the buildup to the first iraq war in the 90s when the iraq incubator incident, in which they fabricated story
reverend joe watkins, former white house aide to george h.w. bush, and author of "let's get free: a hip-hop theory of justice." thank you for joining us today. you know, what struck me most listening to eric hold ther week, as i said, was you have -- this is a democratic administration, eric holder comes out and embraces themes not too long ago in american politics would not have just been suicidal, my first question is, paul, how significantly have ching things changed? >> a sea change. i saw "the butler," the heroic civil rights movement from lynching, jim crow, if we think about african-americans and criminal justice system of 1930s, '40s, '50s, those were the good old days. now disparity is worse. more blacks in the criminal justice system than slaves in 1950s. one out of three black men on his way to prison, so something has got to be done. that's why the attorney general was stepping up. >> i mean, eleanor, thinking back to -- we showed 1986 in there, you can go through bill clinton embracing three strikes and you're out in the 1990s, what has changed culturally and politically to
